    looks to me like a fender based on the headstock....I could be wrong though

    Fender only makes 3 ukuleles: a laminate mahogany, a laminate koa, and a solid mahogany. Out of these three, the one in the video most closely matches the laminate koa (Nohea model as linked to above). These don't come with a pickup so he must have had one installed.
    Custom Ukes:
    Tenors: Moore Bettah, Luis Feu de Mesquita, Monkey Wrench Steel-String Solid-Body

    Production Ukes:
    Sopranos: Surf Flea, Makala Dolphin
    Concerts: Martin C1K, Waverly Street Banjolele

    I like the song but then i don't listen to much radio so i dont get the overplayed too many times in my brain syndrome. I actually listen to talk radio in the car Coast to Coast at night and all the raunchy political talk show ohst during the day when driving. I got into the habit from being a Nightclub disc Jockey in the 70's. after playing music at 120plus DB all night for 7 hours straight the last thing i wanted to hear when i got into the car to go home was more music. Is that a sin? LOL

    hey when did this new font and size feature start....cooollll

    yep its that one, they have a pickup on it though, the only fender uke that comes with a pickup is the solid mohagony one but i guess they like the koa one more and installed one..... anyways i think they really suck lol

    Well, the Guitarist is the one who played the Uke, and seeing as they are a professional band with millions, the chance that he used a laminated Fender is probably slim. My guess was it was a custom Uke. The guitarist actually plays the ukulele for fun, not just in this song, so I'd bet he would have an instrument made, the same as many here on the forums.

    that's definitely a Fender Nohea. I have the exact same one... you can see the fender sticker inside at the beginning of the video if you look really closely.
